This is it. Jbox told you to get off this ship while you still could and you didn't and now you're sunk with us.
Now, it's just a matter of figuring how we're going to make the best of the worst situation. We know that there isn't a team in the league that shouldn't be able to beat us. We know that anybody showing a modicum of talent on this team will find a way to be injured horrifically. We know that 2008 is a cursed season
Here's how I know. The Padres joined the majors in 1969. The year now is 2008, which is the 39th year. 39 is the product of three and thirteen. Everybody knows that 13 is unlucky and that 3 is a biblical number, therefore we're in the middle of a biblically unlucky year for the Padres.
At this point, I'm rooting for the Padres to get to .400. From there, I will root for them to get to .450. With each milestone, I'll celebrate. I'm at the point now where I expect nothing from this team at all. We are at rock bottom. I know we'll probably manage another 20 wins or so between now and the end of the season. With any kind of luck, I'll see a couple or three of those.
